This easy to learn, meditative art form begins with a rock you find on Sunset Beach and ends with a piece of art (and a piece of Lummi Island) that you can treasure for years or give to someone special. Using acrylic paints and tools provided by REC Retreats, follow detailed, easy-to-understand instructions to create a colorful mandala pattern on a beach rock. Mandalas can be complicated and precise, or simple and symmetrical. They are considered mathematically and geometrically "perfect" figures. While painting, enjoy views of Mt. Baker and Canadian Cascade Mountain Range, relax with lemonade or ice tea, listen to the birds, paint and zen out.
Il tuo host
I am the founder and owner of REC Retreats on stunning Lummi Island. I teach engaging, unique, hands-on classes in the REC Retreat studio. Classes focus primarily on arts and/or cooking. Class projects showcase the unique attributes of Lummi Island. Some projects - like Beach Rock Mandalas, use materials found on the island. (Other projects include Beach Treasure Memory Journals, Lummi lavender wreaths and wild blackberry jam.) Yet other projects reflect Lummi’s beauty (felted wool beach rock soap.) In addition to creating at least one take-home keepsake during every class, participants go home with the knowledge, skills and directions to do the activity on their own. I am a life-long amateur artist, and a former elementary school teacher. I now love working with adults as much as I enjoyed teaching the ‘younger set.’
